I was looking for a connection between people and nature. I discovered analogies between humans, plants and trees in their appearance and in their characteristics. Bark and skin, for example, are comparable. Both protect the inside from the outside and can be injured, but also regenerate. In addition, there are similarities between the processes that take place in tree roots and the human brain. The tree trunk, the mushrooms, the tree top, the head and the leaves also allow references. In my photographs I created a dialogue, especially between trees and people. It is an ongoing series.
